With the dream of pursing music, Will would eventually meet Jeffrey A. Townes, who would later become his performance partner. The two began performing together as D.J. Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince. They grew popular in their early twenties only for Will to arrogantly spend his money, bankrupting him early on in his career.

However, he would not give up. He eventually became friends with Benny Medina, an up and coming producer who thought Will was the perfect character for a new sitcom. Soon enough, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (1990) was born. The show was a big hit, lasting six seasons. It also helped jumpstart Will’s film career as he landed leading roles in Bad Boys (1995) and Independence Day (1996).

The following are his 10 best films.
